Star of Serenity

I was all ready to post this red/blue astronomical fantasy when my Internet connection again went down. Cox Communications gave me a brand new modem so this was not supposed to happen. It just proves that something, somewhere, is full of crap. But enough invective. Here's another nebula picture, similar to others I have done. A fresh new star illuminates the gas around it, while other sections of the nebula glow in hydrogen-alpha red. This painting is slightly bigger than the usual ones, so that when reduced in size the details and texture are smoother.

"Star of Serenity" is acrylic on illustration board, 11" x 14", July 1992.
